The headline should read “Women Protest Letter to the Editor in Hilarious Way”

It all started when a town resident wrote a letter to the Barrington Times about his dislike of yoga pants on certain women. Now, he better get ready for the parade.

“Not since the mini-skirt has there been something worn by so many women who should never have it on in the first place,” wrote Alan Sorrentino. “Yoga pants can be adorable on children and young women who have the benefit of nature’s blessing of youth. However, on mature, adult women there is something bizarre and disturbing about the appearance they make in public.”

Now, the ladies of Barrington, RI and beyond have created a Facebook event, inviting women from around the community to a “yoga pants parade” Sunday at 2pm. The parade, which will pass by the writer’s house as they march, is expected to draw hundreds.
